The Universal Code – 11:11
Have you been seeing the numbers 11:11 or 1:11 every time you look at your digital clock or computer screen? Are you continually seeing numbers in sequences like on car registration plates or on billboards? Do you have a favourite number that almost seems to stalk you in your life such as house numbers, id cards or hotel rooms, irrespective of where you are in the world?
As a Numerologist, I experienced countless (excuse the pun) clients asking about this phenomenon, which has become Omni-present since the year 2000 – take note of the triple 000. When a number repeats, it is a cosmic signal. It is the Universe’s way of directing your attention to a major issue or theme that needs to be addressed/acknowledged in your life. These numbers are reaching more people! Scientists and researchers are taking a keen interest in this occurrence. Many feel that this increased awareness of numbers is representative of a greater global consciousness and connection awakening.
Let’s look at the 11:11 experience and why it is presenting itself to so many people globally, including you! The number 11 is the first of the Master Numbers in Numerology and this relates to higher spiritual awareness and awakening. This phenomenon is resonating on a global scale as one, whether we accept this or not. The 11’s represent intuition, and for me demonstrates the importance of male/female balance. Seeing 11:11, or 11’s in general – noticing how often you see it – means that you are developing an awareness of synchronicity – your mind is opening; you are developing spiritual consciousness. You may notice that you are drawn to topics such as spirituality, science, metaphysics and nature. The number one is representative of us, as people being part of one giant consciousness – in essence we are all one.
I decided that I wanted more information on this extraordinary worldwide occurrence and I had the opportunity to speak with two of the other leading world-renowned Numerologists, Dan Millman and Margaret Neylon.
Dan Millman, based in Brooklyn, USA, is the author of 16 books published in 29 languages. His works include “The Way of the Peaceful Warrior”, “The Life You Were Born To Live”, and the upcoming “The Hidden School” to be published in 2016, the final book of the peaceful warrior trilogy.
I began my conversation with Millman, asking him about the life purpose system he uses in “The Life You Were Born to Live”. He asserts that he derived it from a mentor in 1985, where he drew a clever analogy to martial arts training. There are many types of Martial Arts with many techniques. The Tutor will give his all to his students, but when asked to train the Emperor’s children, he will of course, but he will not give the same toolsets to them, that he offers his students, so his students remain superior. There are many ways of interpreting the numbers, however there are many different sources, yet he finds this system is more accurate, yet others have flaws. An unusual mentor taught him this unusual method, which he honed from 20 pages of notes.
I was keen to find out if Millman felt there was a parallel with the 11:11 and conscious awakening phenomenon, however, he felt that this correlation, was more to do with what we draw from it ourselves, rather than anything else. He feels it is significant if we make it so. He also, rather bemusingly, mentioned that he does not know if he actually believes in the system he promotes. His wife Joy shares this viewpoint regarding her practice of Astrology, but wonders is this because she is a Capricorn!
Millman states that as humans, we have a unique ability to associate experience with archetypal imagery, such as the crone, the king, the trickster and so on. He thinks numbers may have archetypes too, and goes on to explain how the Gurdjieff vibration talks about the vibrations of the planets and so on, however Millman refers to himself as a bit of a hobbit in this regard, as it goes completely over his head! Recently Millman and his wife Joy, downsized seriously, and are now living in Brooklyn NYC. He finds this a very different culture, not having a car, using public transport, and walking as a simpler way of life, even bicycling through snow! He now lives moment to moment with many projects on going, such as facilitating a trampoline clinic for a circus school, as every 69-year-old man does!
I questioned Millman on what one kernel of wisdom he would like to give to Positive Life readers. He said “Life comes to us in waves that we can neither predict nor control, but that we can learn to surf. Sometimes surprises are pleasant or less so. Joy comes, and disappointment can equally come. Gaining insight to the innate value of the challenges of daily life is like spiritual weight training as discussed in the “Four Purposes of life” and his other works. We must be trusting the process of life unfolding.”
I asked Millman would numbers play a bigger part in our shift? He states that people are looking for various ways of understanding themselves better regardless of the life path they choose. We may make the right choice for the wrong person, in such as what he calls the trying 20’s where we try any route, and this can continue into the 30’s, 40’s and beyond. This can help us to know ourselves better. He asks that we don’t use numbers as a crutch; we use them as a means to get to know ourselves better.
He curiously states he read a recent statistic that the mortality rate is holding steady at 100% – claiming it is apt he has more life to look back on than forward to, so death and rebirth as we live will be one of the key themes of the Hidden School, the last book in the trilogy of the “The Way of The Peaceful Warrior”.
In signing off he shared this extra piece of wisdom in a brief excerpt from THE LAWS OF SPIRIT.
“The woman sage bids me farewell after an adventure together, with the following words:
‘These are my wishes and prayers for you, all the days of your life. May you find grace as you surrender to life. May you find happiness, as you stop seeking it.
The challenges of daily life will remain, and you will tend to forget what I have shown you,” she said. “But a deeper part of you will remember, and when you do, life’s problems will seem no more substantial than soap bubbles. The path will open before you where before there grew only weeds of confusion. Your future, and the future of all humanity, is a path into the Light, into a growing realization of the Unity with the Creator and all creation. And what lies beyond is beyond description.
“Even when the sky appears at its darkest, know that the sun shines upon you, that love surrounds you, and that the pure Light within you will guide your way home. So trust the process of your life unfolding, and know with certainty, through the peaks and valleys of your journey, that your soul rests safe and secure in the arms of Spirit.’

I asked Margaret what her opinion of the number 11 entails. She feels that the number 11 is about our connection with the earthly and the heavenly planes – it is almost like having one foot on the earth and one in the heavens – as above so below. Many people born on the 11th day or with 11’s in their date of birth may have possibly had a challenging time coming onto earth and therefore may have difficulty with remaining grounded, hence their ability to connect easily with spirit. Seeing reoccurring 11’s is also what she calls an ‘angel nudge’ for us to take notice of and to be aware that this all boils down to the choices that we make. When I asked her about her opinion on the increased number of 11 occurring she felt that Numbers are symbols, which were here before language. We each have an innate knowledge of what numbers mean and it activates an awareness of what we possibly are destined to experience. The year 2000 was particularly significant as the number 2 is about choices and about freeing ourselves of the shackles of dis-empowerment. In many ways in was a time of Renaissance where we began to make conscious choices about life on earth.
